  1. http://fantasysports.yahoo.com/analysis/ne...gue=fantasy/nhl On Feb. 6, Dustin Penner scored his 18th goal of the season, at the time a rather innocent looking marker that put Anaheim up 5-1 in what looked like a laugher against San Jose. The Ducks still won by a fairly comfortable 7-4 margin, but because of a three-goal Sharks rally in the third period, Penner's goal stood up as the game-winner. Which brings us to a debate that has been brewing lately inside the walls of the Yahoo! compound. What was so special about that goal? Was it retroactively clutch because Anaheim got sloppy, took a few penalties and let the Sharks back into the game? Skating off the ice, did Penner even know he was responsible for the game-winner? The early consensus here is that the game-winning goals category is going the way of the two-line pass – not eliminated as a scoring option, but removed as a default category in Yahoo! public leagues. It's just too fluky. Frankly we can't stand the thought of a rotisserie league being decided on the final day by a game-winning goal the likes of which Penner tallied Tuesday. So we've all but decided to jettison the category, but would like some input from public and private league competitors on where to go from there. Which category would you add to replace GWG? Or would you just let it go and run with five skater categories and four goalie cats? In other words: What is your ideal rotisserie league configuration? And, no, you may not consider this an open forum for protesting the inclusion of penalty minutes as a positive scoring category. We are not having that debate. The Skinny will be on vacation next weekend, but I'll use the next few weeks to accumulate your suggestions and pass them along to the decision-makers. On to the recap:
  2. All are correct.

  4. All are correct. Sorry about leaving out the Blues on Gilmour. I guess I need to be a little more diligent on double checking all of these. Left to go are: 15. Devils, Blues, Whalers, Coyotes, Flames, Blackhawks, Canadiens 24. Stars, Maple Leafs, Kings, Canucks, Canadiens, North Stars, Rangers 26. Ducks, Flames, Rangers, Bruins 27.

Canadiens, Blackhawks, Bruins, Blues, Stars 68. Blackhawks, Kings, Blues, Devils, Lightning, Thrashers
  5. Well done!!! Had Primeau played a game for the Flames at the time I posted the listed of teams he had played for? Sorry about the typo on Spacek. One of the "Panthers" should have been "Blackhawks". Good catch. All the others are good.
  6. Aside from the division leaders being ranked 1, 2, 3, there are other cases where a team with less points should be ranked higher. For example, let's say the Wings are 20-10-1 and the Predators are 21-12-1. While the Preds may have more points earned, the Wings have a better W-L-OTL record and putting aside strength of schedule should be ranked higher. That is unless you want to completely ignore the detrimental value of losses, in which you're really just comparing 20-x-1 vs. 21-x-1.

  8. Correct. See Eva Unit Zero's next post for the #30 solution. Correct. Good job on those 3. Warriner is also correct. Excellent. Amazing that Keane and Rucinsky have six teams in common. I wonder if we can find any other two players who have six teams in common? We could start looking with guys like Mike Sillinger and J.J. Daingeault. Left to go are: 8.

  9. Both are correct Good! Surprised no one got this one sooner.
  10. I double checked. It's not supposed to be Martin Rucinsky. This would make a great trivia question: Name two players who have played for the Stars, Canadiens, Blues, Avalanche, Rangers and Canucks. Rucinsky is one and the answer to #17 is the other.
  11. Correct. Left to go are: 7. Flyers, Maple Leafs, Predators, Canucks, Lightning, Coyotes 8. Canadiens, Bruins, Blackhawks, Blues, Flyers, Canucks, Devils, Whalers 15.

  12. All three are correct. Sorry about #35. He also played for the Maple Leafs and Blues. I can't believe I made such an egregious error. 35. Maple Leafs, Blues, Islanders, Rangers, Coyotes, Flames, Panthers, Jets
  13. Both are correct All six are correct Those look awfully close to being Pat Verbeek and Eric Lindros. But I guess not :-(
